As Godzilla: King of the Monsters returned moderate numbers at the box office, we might have to wait to get Godzilla Vs Kong which was initially set to debut next year.
In a recent interview with Deadline, Warner Bros. chairman Toby Emmerich talked about the future of the studio as well as the upcoming movies. Talking about Godzilla vs Kong, he said, “[Godzilla vs. Kong] will deliver for fans in the way they were looking for [in King of the Monsters]. It might come out later in the year, so we can deliver an A+ movie.”
If you followed development of the latest movie, then you know that Godzilla: King of Monsters was originally scheduled for release in March this year. As that movie got delayed, we are more than likely to see upcoming movie getting delayed from its March 13, 2020 release date. Moreover, critics or fans didn’t take the latest Godzilla movie kindly which also reflected by the movie’s $294 million worldwide earnings.
While it’s easy to blame the movie for its moderate success at the box office, remember that Godzilla was released in an unfavorable time. Moviegoers were still interested in the latest Avengers movie and had high expectations from Dark Phoenix movie.
However, good news is that Godzilla Vs Kong has finished filming earlier this year and in case there isn’t a reshoot, the movie might be released on time. However, Emmerich added the difficulties of convincing people to go to theater at present. He stated, “People will always go to the theater. And they’ll be more of an emphasis on tent pole movies than ever before. But the kinds of movies that will justify the experience may become more limited.”
As we move forward, more details regarding the movie will be available. Godzilla Vs. Kong features a lot of talented cast members including Millie Bobby Brown, Julian Dennison, Alexander Skarsgard, Eisa Gonzalez, Kyle Chandler, Jessica Henwick, Rebecca Hall and Lance Reddick.
